Congratulations on acquiring this wonderful machine to help care for your Mother. You have come to the right place to determine the best source for selling this beauty.

I understand your concerns of selling this item through an auction house. However, this is where you will get the highest price.

My name is Randy Donley, owner of Donley Auctions in Union, IL. I have specialized in the buying, selling and repairing of phonographs for over 40 years. My family owns the Wild West Town which also displays my father's phonograph collection in the museum. We are also the founders of the original Phonograph & Music Show that is going on it's 42nd year this coming weekend. We have developed relationships with many collectors over the years from all over the world!

Our auction company holds the world's record for prices on Edison Cylinder, Columbia Cylinder and Victor Disc machines. We would like to offer you our services to sell the North American Class M.

We have a fantastic phonograph auction coming up on July 15th that will be ONLINE on FOUR bidding platforms with thousands of bidders around the world and LIVE with hundreds of bidders from around the country...many of them are serious collectors that we've known for many years.

I would love the opportunity to discuss this with you further. We will offer you ZERO commission on selling the machine so that all proceeds can go to the care of your mother.

My personal cellphone number is 815.790.9435. This will be a no obligation chat and I will happy to answer any and all questions/concerns you may have.

Randy Donley


This is a great offer! The Donley's are good people and will treat you well.

Thank you to all who have helped.

Really, a couple of days ago I had assumed this was an $150 item.

It has been sitting in my grandfathers basement for who know how long.

You should see his shop......

A $150.00 Item??

Try more like over a $20,000 (20K!!) item!

And yours looks to be in really good shape.

Congrats!!

I'm sure that it will be the one of the "highlights" of the Donkey auction.
